These towels felt great and the color was as shown. However, when I was folding them after washing them when they arrived I noticed long runs (like a stocking would get) on the back of both bath towels. One of the face clothes had multiple snags on it and the other had a lose thread which began unraveling when I tried to pull it out. I returned these towels as overall they were a big diappointment.
Have washed and used only twice, but there were no reviews yet. These are very substantial towels (might be too heavy for elderly/frail). They washed well (though slight puckering at hems - they still look good hanging on rod) without excessive lint production, and no lint when using. Weave is tight, but thick and quality feeling, and they absorb well. These are labelled "Kassatex Hotelier", and the same towels elsewhere are priced $25 to $60 more (some sites have different names for the colors, such as charcoal instead of the tile grey I purchased - this is a mid-dark grey). Excellent value, would recommend. For those to whom it matters: these say Made in China.
Simply put, these are the best towels I've ever had -- thick, soft and incredibly absorbent. I was delighted with another set of towels by the same manufacturer that I found on Overstock a few years ago. They have been in constant use since their purchase and look like the day I took them out of the packaging. I expect the same kind of wear and continuing good looks from these as well. These towels are woven, so if you do get a hanging thread you can safely cut it. However, I've never found a hanging thread in any of their towels. They are very well made and firmly stitched on all four sides. Worth every penny!
I have not found towels this thick and absorbent in a very long time. Washed them once before using. There was some shedding, but nothing since the initial wash. Have bought two other sets since the first, and have recommended to friends who also bought and were very pleased.
These towels are beautiful for the price, but I wanted to point out a few things for those of you considering them. Foremost, I ordered the sterling blue color thinking it would coordinate well the greys in my bathroom. On two different computer monitors, the sterling blue looks to be a beautiful greyish-blue. In person, the towels are closer to a deep aqua. Although there's nothing wrong with the color, it looks nothing like the color online. A second minor issue has to do with the border pattern. On the generously sized bath towels, the pattern is sharp and clearly defined; however, on the hand towels (which are also generously sized) and wash cloths, the pattern is much less distinct. Perhaps this is to be expected, but I was somewhat disappointed. Overall, though, these are good quality towels and a reasonable price.

I love these towels. I had found two at Marshalls but after searching and searching for more, I couldn't find any until I checked Overstock. I was so happy. I got the green, which was slightly different than those at Marshalls so I ordered two sets so they would match. I've had them about a year now and they look new. I've VERY picky about my towels. I want them to completely absorb and dry and these do. Great price too! I just wish I could order extra hand and washcloths without having to purchase the bath sheet.
Waited until washing the towel set a few times to write this review. The towels are soft, weighty, absorbent and big. The sand color is a little off from color seen at site. We are pleased overal. Like the design also rather than a plain towel. Have no problem with "runs" mentioned by others. Price is exceptional.
I ordered the Sterling Blue towels - they are not blue. They are closer to aqua green. Now they need to go back. Very disappointing. The yellow towels match the color represented. I've not yet used them, but they feel soft to the touch and are reasonable priced. However, I would not consider them plush.
I ordered half of a dozen of the Blue Egyptian Cotton Towels SPA 750. They are great!! Very soft and dry fast. I would recommend these towels to anyone who enjoys luxurious soft towels.

These towels do seem to have a lot of pulls in them and they are not very soft or absorbent. I have purchased other towels from Overstock and them were of much better quality. Overall not perfect but OK for a guest bedroom.

I'm a long time Overstock customer and have bought a lot of furniture, mattresses & items for the home, with good experiences. This is why you can believe me when I say Do Not Buy this towel set! The sewn borders of one bath towel and washcloth from the set began unraveling after 1 wash and before any use. This set was well rated in reviews, but a few people did mention this exact problem. Now, as an experienced OS customer, after experiencing the defective product myself and having to go through the hassel of returning it, my strong advice is DO Not Buy. I'm surprised that Overstock is still selling this product after several reviews of the defect. Don't they read the reviews and investigate to improve their product lines??? If such defects became a regular problem with their items, their business would crash. Why don't they try to improve their business, instead of shooting themselves in the foot?
These towels are lovely and absorption is superb. I looked for lose threads when I first opened the package. Finding none I washed and used them. Now after each wash I am finding lose threads on one of the bath towels and I fear it may slowly shred away. Such a disappointment when it is such a great towel.
I was looking for thicker towels and these are two-sided, same depth. However, as with all thick towels, it seems to take a little longer to dry off with one. They don't grab liquid as well as some cheaper towels I have had. But regular washing should take care of this. I really like them otherwise.

- How is the quality of the product? The towels are large, thick, nice-looking.I was looking for thicker towels and these are two-sided, same depth.
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes, except for slight color variation from picture to real product.
I found a few snags but just clipped them. Had been looking for nice towels for our master bath but didn't want to spend $25 for one bath towel. These are a good deal. They came in a variety of colors but only the brown would work in our bathroom and it's darker than I prefer. I'm sure they will last a long time. The hand towels could easily be used as a bath mat.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? Very heavy duty and big
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? very well
The towels were a gift, and I am told that the quality is excellent and the color "dye" is of good quality. The recipient also likes the "trim design" on the towel. They are a nice weight towel, perfect for daily use, and not so thick that they won't dry in the Bay Area climate.
